How to make black garlic?

RECIPES, VeganCrush | 30/06/2019 | By

Black garlic is created by a careful aging process, which causes the sugars and amino acids to react, resulting in it’s dark pigment.

It is used in various dishes and also as a probiotic drink or medicine to cure or strengthen the immune system.

The taste is deeply intense and reminds me of dried figs with a hint of tamarind or balsamic vinegar. I love to add black garlic to enhance dishes like salads, cheese platter, soups, or bowls like this!

The best thing -> this magical black beauty is suuuper easy to create! A small warning, you will have that delicious garlic smell wafting in your kitchen for the entire cooking process. So be prepared to have your tummy grumbling.

Start out with 6 whole unpeeled garlic bulbs. Give them a good rinse and let them dry overnight.  Next, place them in a rice cooker in a “keep warm” setting. Let them sit there uninterrupted for 2-3 weeks.

Check the rice cooker occasionally if the “keep warm” setting is still on and that it hasn’t switched off.

Store in an airtight container and keep up to 3 months.
